We had a wonderful morning travelling back in time discovering how Christmas was celebrated in the past. We made natural evergreen decorations from Pagan times, gingerbread pig biscuits from the Tudor period, crackers from the Victorian era and paper chains, with a make do and mend theme from the 1940s.The children also enjoyed an elf hunt in the walled garden and a Christmas puppet show to end our day.
The children had a lovely time taking part in the activities and the ponies were a highlight for some! Hopefully their crackers made it home with the gift still inside! The children were a pleasure to be with and they made us very proud with their behaviour and politeness towards the staff at Cogges Farm.
